magazine, john micklethwait, zanny minton beddoes and philip coggan, looking at the global economy. to. >> if you look at history, it would be very weird if you had this amount of this amount of economic dislocation without some degree of political reaction. >> what is staggering to me about the way people are looking at politics is everyone is expecting nothing to change, and that should be the most surprising, if historians come back and look at this period and we still end with the same parties doing the same things, that would be truly extraordinary, because that would be against everything else which has ever happened in any other period of economic dislocation on this scale. >> rose: we conclude this evening with the comedian aziz ansari and for me doing the live special with the very first time i felt bad in a weird way, where i talk about how scared i would be to have a kid or how scared the idea of marriage was to me, and i could see people in the audience like thank you for saying that. i am your age or i am older or younger and feel that same thing and feel that same pressur

to continue the massive bond buying program to give the u.s. economy a boost. wrapping up a two-day meeting policy makers at the central bank forecast weaker growth ahead and said the fed will continue the stimulus program and keep the key interest rate at 0%. the fed's state signalled the economy continues to improve but only modestly. >>> investors poured over the statement and seemingly didn't find much to hold on to. stocks set out records yet, maybe they were just tired today and that's why they sold off. probably as good an explanation as any. the dow 61 and nasz deck off 21 and s&p lower by eight. treasury notes were low and yields sparked higher at 2.54%. >>> joining us more to talk about the fed meeting, david kelly, chief global strategist at jp morgan fund. no surprises on that fed decision. even was expecting it but there was speculation one of the reasons the marketsç stayed in the minus column was that there was speculation that maybe ben bernanke will begin this whole tapering thing before he steps down as chief any time between december and january. what do you think? >> i
and everybody got paid. earnings a mixed bag with enough treats to balance out the tricks and the economy is okay. >> the economy is still growing at roughly 2%. so i think it's fairly resilient. we would have actually been growing faster. >> reporter: all and all a pretty good recipe for stocks in a month that's turned its reputation for being unfriendly to equity investors. there was october 1929 of course, the market fell more than 20% ushering in the great depression. there was 1987. the dow crashed 23% in a day and in 2008, the dow was down 28% for the month despite the index' biggest one-day gain ever, more than 936 points on october 13th. this year, of course, it's different. record highs for the dow up 3%. the s&p 500 up almost 5%. the russell 2,000 nearly 3% higher and nasdaq with a gain of 4% this month is higher than its been in 13 years. investment trick or treat. >> try not to think about the levels because it scars you. >> i'm getting more nervous. i'm fighting the greedy monos. >> reporter: so what happens from here? that naturally is anybody's guess really. season nalty is
. >> our economies are very integrated. one would expect that they'll continue to be integrated. you know, so the idea that we're going to isolate them, i don't really see how that would work in any case. but if that were a goal of policy, if we actually could get to a situation where we did sort of separate the countries, that would not be a pretty picture. so i think we have to look to integrate with them and ideally on better terms than we currently have. >> some people refer to this pacific deal as the "north american free trade agreement on steroids." does that make sense to you? >> well, it does because the north american trade agreement in the end wound up helping corporations and didn't do much for american workers. in fact, there have been economists who've said that nafta produced as much as nearly a million job losses in the u.s. and the whole notion of this agreement is to facilitate the movement of capital and to give capital even more privileges than it has now. so, you know, workers, except for a few who have a seat at the table like the uaw, are basically at the back of th
to the fundamentals. is the economy working? are jobs being created? and the answer is no. and people are still angry about that. but where all of these issues get tied together is i think that most wonderful question is the federal government part of the problem or part of the solution? people are looking at washington, and they're seeing a government shutdown. a problem for the economy, drags consumer confidence down, slows the economy. government created the problem, right? health care website. who created that problem? n.s.a.'s spying. who created that problem? so these are all problems that the federal government seems to be creating and not solving. and that is what's pulling everybody down. >> doyle, if we could rewind you a bit here. you said the lesson here is that if the government shuts down, everybody's numbers go down. we have the possibility of this happening again in the next couple of months. did they learn this lesson? do these poll numbers make any difference? >> i think -- certainly the leadership of congress and -- let's be precise. it's the house republicans we're talking about.
is a competitive market and the concern is if this economy plateaus or doesn't continue growing at the clip it's been growing at, will they have to put more money to goose the sales? >> all right. we'll keep watching. phil, thanks so much. >>> well, it is a new month and on wall street, day one was a good one for stocks. the markets got a big boost from a surprisingly strong read on u.s. manufacturing in october. it rose at the fastest pace in 2.5 years. all major averages avoiding a third consecutive day of loses with stocks rising into the close, the dow up nearly 70 points, nasdaq added two, the s&p 500 was up five. rates on the ten-year treasury note rose steadily all session long closing up at 2.6%. >>> time for the central bank to phaseout the stimulus program. charles plauser said the feds should have begun tapering back at its meeting earlier this week. >> i thought we kind of missed an opportunity to make a small gesture to signal the fact this is a dial we can promove and adt it and fine tune it, if you will. >> he suggested setting a maximum dollar amount instead of sticking to the
in the economy so their needs have not changed. they still see their hours suppressed, unemployment high and they still need this food assistance and they rely on map is for making sure their households have a nutritionally adequate diet. >> brown: that's part of the argument, right? one argue system a very large argument that's been going on for a long time. another one is the immediate what happened during the recession and things haven't recovered far lot of people. >> i think that's exactly right which is why we're not advocating back to prerecessionary spend bug the fact is we're spending about 50% more on aggregate welfare than we were when the recession began. it's a huge, huge increase and under obama's budget it's not scheduled to go down. the trillion dollars a year will go up to a trillion and a half. >> brown: why do you think the numbers have gone up so high in terms of the number of people? >> i think part of it is the economy. no one could deny that. there's serious rates of unemployment that continue but but this program is rife with fraud. it has an outreach to bring peo
studying the complexity of the u.s. and global economy. the financial crises of 2008 took nearly everyone by surprise, leading economists and the brightest minds on wall street were forced to rethink fundmental functions, the map and the territory, risk, human nature and the future of forecasting is a guide to measuring economic vacialsz -- variables one thought to be immeasurable. i'm glad to have alan greenspan back at this table. welcome. how do we decide on the map and the territory. >> it's a little abstract and that's what it's supposed to be. the map is supposed to be the conceptual framework what we're doing with and the territory is reality. and economists always try to get the two of them to come together and a good deal of the times we fail. >> rose: all right. let's talk about all that. role clip. this is a clip with you and i n an interview before you wrote this book. >> something you can never the quite cal brate is the human emotional aspect of markets. >> i'm glad you raised that issue charlie because i'm just starting to write a economic. it's call the economytrics of
this is the new brazil, it is the leading economy in latin america. it's now 1-2%. >> yes. well, you know, i'm a terrible skeptic about those gdp numbers. sometimes they say 1.3 or 3.1 or 2.2. if it's 1.6 you get depressed and you don't invest. it doesn't work like that. this is a very big measure of things going on, and has huge holes in gdp. like for example, if you make a hole and then fill it up again, it counts as gdp. so i have a lot of questions about gdp numbers. but having said that, we have gone through a period of slower growth. >> rose: because? >> well, again, government management in the last, in the last presidency calderon was disastrous. what he did in terms of putting the war a drugs on everybody's mind and scaring everybody about you can be killed if you visit mexico or you go to certain towns. i mean, that's not conductive to any kind of good business. >> rose: but the operative idea he had was we kind of wiped this out because it was hurting mexico in every way. recognizing the demand came to the united states otherwise it wouldn't have been the kind of business it was
, the global economy, and the changing nature of work. professor shakin, thank you for joining us on the program. >> let me ask you -- >> it's very nice to be here. >> let me ask you, first of all, about the bart contract and the terms being offered to union workers, including a 15.4% pay raise over four years. what do you think of the terms? good contract? >> i think it's a very good contract. it's fair to both sides. a lot of hard bargaining got us here, but it's something in which both sides can go forward and build on it in constructive ways for bart, for the public, and for each other. >> and for the first time they will be paying into their pensions 1% per year and then rising to 4% in the fourth year. also, health insurance premiums will rise from $92 to $129 a month. those sound equitable to you as well? >> they do. i think we have to put it in a bit of a context. for workers they didn't receive a wage raise over the last four years prior to negotiations, so it's a generous contract for the four years going forward, but it's also meant to pick up some lost ground where the
act will help provide more entrepreneurs in more places and in more sectors of our economy the ability to raise the capital, to get started or to grow their company. >> reporter: arturo says this new law could help him raise money. >> it will allow us to focus on growth much faster and not have to deal with the standard angel funding ventures we would have to go on. >> reporter: is this also going to create more jobs? >> absolutely. if we want to get our economic growth up, the place to start is start-ups. to make sure we're competitive, the focus is start-ups. >> reporter: according to the bureau of labor statistics, each year since 1994, start-ups gained more of all u.s. businesses. to upgrade the law so anyone can raise money over the internet, entrepreneurs will have more access to capital and will, in turn, create more jobs. >> the internet didn't exist 80 years ago. most people didn't have television 80 years ago. most people didn't have cars 80 years ago. the world has changed, and we need to reflect that. >> reporter: but what about the risk to investors? businesses who may hav

social health. and those two ingredients are on the one hand notions of equal opportunity and the economy, and at work, and which americans would find very little fault with. but the other side of that equation is, they've also supported notions of family support policies. that they want all their families to be healthy, to be economically secure, and to have as many earners as possible and as many caretakers as possible. so that means, not only that they have incorporated women into the workforce, they've incorporated men into the home. they have very strong policies that bring men in as fathers, and finally, they've accepted and in fact, embraced the notion that families are part of larger communities, and good child care makes it possible for women and men to gain more equality in their lives. >> and educational attainment, we are tied for first with about 24 our countries. >> exactly. >> but when it comes to health and survival, the speck measure of healthy life expectancy, we're 53rd. much lower than one would think living in the u.s.? >> very counter intuitive since we talk all the
